Savory Oatmeal, Eggs and Molasses
(~350 calories, 19g protein, 39g carbs, 13g fat)
- 1/3 cup of Coach’s Steel Cut Oatmeal (160 calories)
- 1/2-1 tsp of no-salt seasoning mix (Kirkland Organic No-Salt Seasoning or try Flavor Republic’s “One”)
- 1 tbsp Black Strap Molasses (adds 42 calories from 11g carbs, magnesium and a little sweetness)
- 1 cup water
- 2 large eggs (each large egg adds 70 calories at .35g carbs, 4.75g fat and 6.3g protein)
- Bring 1 cup of water to boiling in small (1 1/2) quart pot
- Mix 1/2-1 tsp no-salt seasoning (to taste) with 1/3 cup of steel cup oatmeal
- Add oatmeal and seasoning to slow boiling water (the boil should increase when you add the oatmeal)
- Add molasses (if desired) to boiling water before or after adding the oatmeal
- Turn down heat to a slow simmer (about 1/3 on my stove)
- Cook oatmeal for 2 minutes
- Add 2 large eggs to cooking oatmeal and stir carefully while keeping egg yolks unbroken but cooking the egg whites
- Cook egg-oatmeal mixture for 2 minutes
- Cover pot and turn off heat for 1 minute
- Pour oatmeal and egg mixture into a bowl for hearty breakfast or anytime meal in just over 5 minutes
Increase the number of eggs or add egg whites to increase protein content and calories. While not normally a fan of fried eggs, I find runny versus cooked-through egg yolks enrich the flavor and texture of the oatmeal as I spoon up the golden goodness.
I find the Kirkland Seasoning is a little stronger and naturally sweeter, as you try to find your favorite seasonings. You can experiment with Herbs Provence, Chili Powder and a little Cayenne Pepper, if you don’t have a favorite seasoning handy. If you have herbs in the garden, I’ve used fresh thyme, oregano and rosemary too.
If you don’t need the added magnesium, you can cut 11g of carbs to get you closer to the 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% fat ratio, and it still tastes great without the molasses sweetness. Don’t be afraid to experiment as I’ve added sunflower seeds at times too. Food is supposed to taste good to you!
